new romney/ryan real recovery road rally. everybody's coming. and the sons, paul ryan, paul ryan's wife who we have yet to actually meet, rudy giuliani, a couple olympic medalists, every elected official except he who must not be named in new jersey. sudden plans for a road trip are usually the sign of a pressing need to escape reality. >> is meatloaf going to be there? >> as long as he brings those pipes. >> all right. they should bring chris. this chris christie thing, is it really a big problem for mitt romney? why can't he now campaign with chris christie and be proud of it? >> it is a brig problem. >> i don't get it. that's a problem. that's the problem. >> literally, you have that image of them going like this. >> so what? they need to get over it. >>> up next, the tale of two cities. a line of demarcation separates the manhattan with power from the manhattan completely in the dark. jon stewart offers his take on a divided new york.

of the campaign, which we saw here on "morning joe" when paul ryan went to a soup kitchen in ohio after the patrons were gone and put on a crispy white apron and appeared to wash dishes that looked clean. later said they were dirty. mitt romney has to look presidential at times when it would be tempting to do a photo op. to remind you that both campaigns have a real feeling of trepidation at the moment. you pointed out numbers that looked good for romney. but that north carolina poll that you showed, romney tied right before the election, and politico, the carl rove group, up at eight states including north carolina, not a good sign, and fascinatingly, they are not advertising wisconsin, karl rove thinks it's not going to happen for mitt romney considerably narrowing his options. >> what do you make, mike, of what we were talking about earlier? pennsylvania and minnesota attracting money from both campaigns and valuable time from president clinton? >> yeah, it's insurance by them, but i think you made a great point. the bill clinton in minnesota, an astonishing piece of resources.

, obviously. today paul ryan's going to be going to colorado, and then they're going to work back to wisconsin and end up on ohio on friday with a big rally there. i don't know how this plays out. my own instinct is, in reading everything that i am, talking to all the campaigns, it's too close to call at this point. i think we're going to have a very long night. this is one more demonstrati demonstration -- i know you're tired of me saying this, an unforeseen impact. and there are other things that could go awry and in some way affect this. but i do think it froze the campaign for romney. he had momentum going. and then everything went on hold for a while. and what the impact of that will be come tuesday, it's hard to know. but it is a reminder of we work best when we work together on things when there's a big challenge. and these challenges go well beyond what happened with sandy. >> let's cover it all. president obama is pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of hurricane sandy. today he's scheduled to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris
